The application of intelligent imaging techniques to industrial vision problems is an evolving aspect of current machine vision research. Machine vision is a relatively new technology, more concerned with systems engineering than with computer science, and with much to offer the manufacturing industry in terms of improving efficiency, safety and product quality. Beginning with an introductory chapter on the basic concepts, the authors develop these ideas to describe intelligent imaging techniques for use in a new generation of industrial imaging systems. Sections cover the application of AI languages such as Prolog, the use of multi-media interfaces and multi-processor systems, external device control, and colour recognition. The text concludes with a discussion of several case studies that illustrate how intelligent machine vision techniques can be used in industrial applications.

This modern treatment of computer vision focuses on learning and inference in probabilistic models as a unifying theme. It shows how to use data to learn the relationships between the observed image data and the aspects that we wish to estimate.

The topics covered in this book include fundamental theoretical aspects of robust stereo correspondence estimation, novel and robust algorithms, hardware implementation for fast execution, neuromorphic engineering, probabilistic analysis, etc.

Provides an extensive survey of over 100 machine vision methods, with a detailed taxonomy for local, regional and global features. It provides background to develop intuition about why interest point detectors and feature descriptors actually work.
